[Spread-users] PERL issues...

It errors in Spread:connect - I'll show you all everything that I have

[mcj at singularity dev]$ ./SpreadListener.pl
Can't use string ("spread_name") as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in
use at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/i386-linux/Spread.pm line 158.

Here's the script:

$| = 1;

use Spread;

sub cleanup() {

$SIG{INT} = "cleanup";

my($mailbox, $private_group) = Spread::connect(
  spread_name=>'4803 at localhost',
  private_name=>'test.singularity') or die();

Spread::join($mailbox, 'test') or die(); 

print "Hey, hey!  Made it this far\n";

while (1) {
  my(@stuff) = Spread::receive($mailbox, 1);
  print ".";
  foreach (@stuff) {
    print "\n$_";
  print "\n";

Create example code that triggers this problem (as few lines as 
possible)... Post it here.  Then we can help.
